Cavotec says it has supplied an integrated system of radio remote control (RRC) units for a new ferry, 'Braheborg', on the Gränna-Visingsö service. The system will operate 8 lanes of traffic lights, a road barrier and hydraulic road decks on the Swedish car ferry.

The ferry service links the island of Visingsö to the mainland at the town of Gränna in central southern Sweden, with some forty sailings daily. The Cavotec system consists of four MC-3200 RRC terminals  fitted with a radio link, and base units installed at Gränna and Visingsö.

A special feature on this installation is real-time view of the status of all traffic and road barriers, shown on LED displays mounted on the terminals. These will show operators which lights are red or green, and the position of the road barrier.

Cavotec add that a key feature of the installed system is that it is equipped with twin radio technology to ensure a range of more than 1,500 metres between the terminal and base units. This feature is an essential requirement because it allows operators to switch on shore-based fog lights to ensure safe navigation.
